Black Satin Featuring Fred ParrisBlack Satin Featuring Fred Parris ... LP
Buddah, 1976. Very Good- ... $5.99
Like a lot of the younger singers from the Doo Wop era, vocalist Fred Parris (from the 5 Satins) made the shift to more modern soul styles as the years went by. This 1976 album has him leading a modern version of the 5 Satins named Black Satin, and recording for Buddah with a similar sound to some of their other good soul groups from the time. Gene Page and Paul Leka do the arrangements on the LP, and the tracks include "Get It Up", "Hey There Pretty Lady", "Tears, Tears, Tears", "How I Wish We Could Do It Again", "We're A Star", and a remake of their classic "In The Still Of The Night".

✨✧ Fred Parris & The SatinsFred Parris & The Satins ... LP
Elektra, 1982. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The Five Satins were always one of the classiest groups of the doo wop era – and they really continue that legacy here in a wonderful set of modern soul tracks from the early 80s – a record that's got all the careful poise and polish of other excellent Elektra soul albums from the same period! Lead singer Fred Parris is firmly out front – and the group's a quartet – but the approach here draws on older harmony strengths, and works things through a sweet set of contemporary R&B charts – very groovy sounds that are light years away from the style of the group back in the 60s! Titles include the great stepper "Let Me Be The Last One", an excellent version of "Didn't I Blow Your Mind", and the cuts "Loving You Would Be The Sweetest Thing", "I'll Be Seeing You", and "Breaking Up".

VariousDance Mania – Ghetto Madness ... CD
Strut (UK), Mid 90s. Used ... $4.99
Strut Records takes another dip into the rich legacy of Dance Mania Records – one of the longer-lasting imprints on the Chicago house scene – and a label that continued to make lots of great music after others had given up! The focus here is on the later years of Dance Mania – a time when national and critical attention had shifted away from Windy City house, which only seemed to open things up even more – as the artists got even more experimental with their styles, and turned out some really amazing work! There's almost nothing here that seems aimed at the mainstream or the charts at all – and, if anything, the tracks seem to return to the darkest, spookiest styles of the early acid years – with a similar sort of sonic intensity. Titles include "The Groove" by Houz'mon, "Ghetto Booty" by Parris Mitchell, "Computer Sex" by DJ Funk, "Hit It" by Darien, "Computer Madness" by Steve Poindexter, "1112" by DJ Deeon, "Pump That Shit Up" by Jammin Gerald, "Bounce That Body" by Wax Master Maurice, "Give Me Ecstasy" by Paul Johnnson, and "Pump On The Floor" by Jammin Gerald.

✨✧ VariousSoul Of Spanish Harlem – Beautiful Soul Music From The Heart Of New York's Spanish Harlem ... LP
Fania/BGP (UK), Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the hippest sets we've ever seen on Spanish Harlem – a collection that goes way past the Latin Soul hits, to dig deep in the uptown underground at the end of the 60s! The package is compiled with gems from the Fania catalog, but rally moves past the obvious – going for some of the more obscure artists who recorded singles for some of the smaller Fania-held labels – and often focusing on tunes that drew more from late 60s soul and funk than they did from any Latin rhythms of the time. The singers are especially wonderful – and often hit a vibe that's right up there with some of Joe Bataan's best of the period – richly soulful, but often deeply personal too – never as polished as chart soul, and often showing a grittier, more realistic style that's totally great – especially when mixed with instrumentation as tight as this! Titles include "Reflections Of My Life" by 125th Street Candy Store, "On Old Broadway" by 107th Street Stickball Team, "Don't Be Afraid" by Lebron Brothers, "Central Park" by Harvey Averne Dozen, "Heaven" by Tito Ramos, "Your Smile" by Parris, "Some Lonely Heart" by Ronnie Marks, "There's No Girl" by Olivieri, "Maria Maria" by King Nando, "Already Satisfied" by Tony Middleton & Bobby Matos, "Nitty Boo Boo" by The Nitty Sextette, "Lonely Has Been My Day" by Ralphie & The Latin Lovers, "I'm Gonna Leave You" by Russell Cohen & The New Yorkers, and "Ain't No Big Thing" by Ralfi Pagan.

Wire, 2017. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That's the great Nicole Mitchell on the cover – one of our hometown heroes in Chicago, and one of the few jazz musicians who've really been able to push the agenda of the AACM forward in the 21st Century! Mitchell's music continues to develop in wonderful ways over the years – and the nice cover feature really gets at the mix of personal warmth and creative complexity she brings to her sound – alongside other articles on Kassel Jaeger, Parris, Eloise Decazes, and Jaimie Branch – as well as a listeners guide to reedman Evan Parker, and Shabazz Palaces on the Invisible Jukebox! All that, and lots more too – including the usual run of reviews on music, films, and performances. Magazine

Theo ParrishParallel Dimensions ... CD
Sound Signature, 2000. New Copy ... About April 28, 2017 (delayed)
Amazing stuff from Detroit future house genius Theo Parrish! Parallel Dimensions couldn't be a more appropriate title for the set. Parrish takes the languorous, hypnotic elements learned from years in the Detroit house scene and blends those loops and beats with a rich tapestry of distorted organic sounds and rhythms. Dissonant horns, keys and chanted vocals filter throughout these long numbers – sort of holding the groove together for the trippier soundscapes. The vibe is wholly unique – going way beyond a simple dancefloor groove – into territory that works on a deeper, headier level! A signature statement from the hugely talented Theo Parrish! Tracks include "So Now What", "Anansies Dances", "Serengeti Echoes", "Reaction To Plastic", "Space Ghosts", "Brain", the 12-plus minute epic "Summertime Is Here", Brain", "Violet Green" and more! CD

✨✧ Dean Parrish/JB TroyBricks, Broken Bottles, & Sticks/Live On ... 7-inch
Outta Sight (UK), 1965/1966. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A great single – with two rare righteous cuts from the 60s! "Bricks, Broken Bottles, & Sticks" has a New York early 60s Atlantic sound that recalls the best work of Ben E King – painting a bleak picture of uptown living, amidst a sweet little groove that creates a wonderful tension! JB Troy sings "Live On", and really knocks it out of the park – with a righteous vocal that really matches the energy of the groove and the message of the lyrics! 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ VariousTheo Parrish – Black Jazz Signature (unmixed) ... LP
Black Jazz/Snow Dog (Japan), Early 70s. New Copy 2 LPs Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
Theo Parrish takes on the music of Black Jazz Records – yet somehow manages to make the whole thing come across with a cosmic groove that's all his own! By that, we don't mean that Theo's messing with the cuts – just that his selection here really highlights the more expansively electric and rhythmically angular elements of the label's classic catalog – sounds that are clearly an inspiration for a huge number of 21st Century musicians and producer – not just Parrish himself! There's a richly spiritual vibe to the whole set – and the collection is easily one of the best presentations of the Black Jazz label we've ever heard – stunning from start to finish. The LP features a dozen Black Jazz tracks, all unmixed – and titles include "My Favorite Things" by Gene Russell, "Those Who Chant" by Walter Bishop, "Jupiter" and "Convulsions" by The Awakening, "Trance Dance" by Doug Carn, "Time & Space" by Rudolph Johnson, "Criss Cross" and "BE" by Calvin Keys, and "Blue Bossa" by Walter Bishop Jr. LP, Vinyl record album

EPMD's incredible full length debut – straight up classic hip hop that gave the genre a whole new twist.

✨✧ VariousSun Ra Dedication – The Myth Lives On ... CD
Kindred Spirits (Netherlands), 2003. Used ... Out Of Stock
The legacy of Sun Ra lives on strongly – in this surprisingly wonderful set of tribute tracks! The album features work by an assortment of future jazz underground players and producers – all current talents that have clearly been influenced by Ra, especially his most righteous 70s work – and the tunes on the set really go for the best side of the "Space Is The Place" generation, moving past some of the wilder avant work of Ra & the Arkestra, and instead focusing on the group's music that had a more cosmic and far-reaching spiritual approach. And although we were a bit suspicious at first, we have to say that the results are great – an updating of Ra for the Goya London scene, done as best as we could have hoped! Titles include "Nuclear War" by Yesterdays New Quintet, "Black" by King Britt, "Nuclear War" by Alex Attias, "Saga Of Resistance" by Theo Parrish, "Stars Are Singing Too" by Build An Ark, "Astro Black" by Offworld, "Paepulsariki" by Recloose with Jonathan Crayford, and "Love In Outer Space" by Jimi Tenor.

✨✧ VariousPsychemagik – Ritual Chants (3CD set) ... CD
Eskimo (Belgium), 1970s/1980s. New Copy 3 CDs ... Out Of Stock
Maybe one of the coolest Psychemagik collections we've heard so far – a set that spans the 70s and 80s in search of very unusual, very offbeat tracks – many of which have kind of a post-prog, post-electronic, post-disco approach – sometimes spare and instrumental, usually a bit more full and vocal – and very different than more familiar club or dancefloor tracks that you might know! Some of the best music here has a sweet Euro sort of vibe – the kind of cuts that were maybe never trying to do more than make a slight wave in their own scene, rather than take the world by storm – especially as the collection moves on, and things get groovy, but in a way that's still unfamiliar. 3CD set features 40 tracks in all – and titles include "Dance On" by Ennio Morricone, "Amram" by The RIAS Orchestra, "Water Sports" by man Parrish, "Caroline" by Free Fantasy, "L'Amour Joue Au Violon" by Jeanette, "Making Love" by Bobby Lyle, "Habibi" by Amini, "Fancy Good" by Electric Machine, "Cover Girl" by Jean Guy Ruff, "Lipstick" by JM Black, "Take Me Back"b y Bolden Hands, "Do The Zru" by Zru Vogue, "Rhodas" by El Sueno De Hyparco, and "I'm Still In Love With You" by The Right Combination.

✨✧ Various808 – The Music ... CD
Big Beat, 1980s/2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A fantastic tribute to the 808 drum machine – tracks all pulled together in support of the documentary on the magical beatmaker – but a set that stands more than strongly on its own! The mix of music is great – a heavy dose of 80s hip hop and club tracks, mixed with some more contemporary cuts from recent years – tracks that mark the return of the 808 to beatmaking strength – as a younger generation of creators embrace its sound all over again! Titles include "Set It Off" by Strafe, "Play At Your Own Risk" by Planet Patrol, "Yo Bum Rush The Show" by Public Enemy, "Planet Rock" by Afrika Bambaataa & The Soulsonic Force, "Paul Revere" by The Beastie Boys, "It's Yours" by T La Rock & Jazzy Jay, "Flow Coma" by 808 State, "Let The Music Play" by Shannon, "Hip Hop Be Bop" by Man Parrish, "Kickdrum" by Felix Da Housecat, "What You Gon Do" by Lil Jon & The East Side Boyz, "Vibrate" by Fluxx Pavillion, "Nothing But Trouble" by Lil Wayne & Charlie Puth, and "Gosh" by Jamie XX.
